A system for analysis of ions, neutrals and radicals in UHV desorption studies

The Hiden IDP (Ion Disorption Probe)  is for the direct analysis of low energy ions from UHV surface science techniques. Applications include electron stimulated desorption, photon stimulated desorption and thermal desorption studies.



The Hiden EPIC and IDP have all the features of high performance RGAs – but with the addition of pole bias mid-axis potential and negative ion capability making them outstanding research grade mass spectrometers.

The system is supplied with MASsoft Professional software.

This Windows 10 and Windows 11 compatible software allows control of the instrument via USB 2.0, RS232 or Ethernet. Provides comprehensive I/O for data output and for reading data from external devices for integration and display with mass spectrometer data.

The iRGA software is a new and intuitive application for routine vacuum monitoring. It is designed to be simple and automatic.

  • automatically provides partial pressure data for the common residual gas and vapours, including hydrogen, helium, water, nitrogen, oxygen, argon and a custom gas.
  • includes a new tablet view where the background colour changes depending on alarm condition
  • includes a trend view, scan, leak detection and maintenance modes
  • includes alarm function to send alerts to internal I/O, Wi-Fi and by email
